Philabundance was founded in 1984 with the simple belief that no one should go hungry while healthy food goes to waste. Our mission is to drive hunger from our communities today and to end hunger for good. In addition to food distribution, we strive to reduce food waste, increase access to nutritious meals, and tackle the root causes of hunger through programs such as the Philabundance Community Kitchen.
For our November 2021 Shine Day, we were at MANNA packaging food. MANNA uses nutrition to improve health for people with serious illnesses who need nourishment to heal. By providing medically tailored meals and nutrition education, they empower people to improve their health and quality of life.
Every year, we open the doors of our private club to help those in need. This year, we are hosting a live and silent auction with food, drinks, and live music to benefit For Pete's Sake. Beyond dollars raised, our goal is to get people back to the Club and get them excited to help For Pete's Sake.
